to remember we have a lot of headwinds we're dealing with from the sequester, one, to the tax increase, at the payroll tax. so, these issues we have to get through. i don't think they're major but they are headwinds. now we've got a lot of people thinking about what happened last year. down 3% in the second quarter. people wanted to buy in the market started to dip. wait a minute. this may be more significant. the fact of matter, as he have yesterday, 7% of the companies that reported earnings beat estimates. whether the estimates were poor estimate, weak estimates. the fact of the matter as long as data remains relatively, weak, not strong, muddled through the fed will be a long way as way from ending its quantitative easing. the other thing we havv to pay attention to which i think gives us a lot of upside potential is that what's happening in japan is nothing less than significant. and we need to pay attention to the yen. tracy: so let's first finish with the united states because i know you are hot on the yen. you've talked about it last time you were here. that means based on what

and also the outlooks are all netive because the sequester, payroll tax cut that went away, all that stuff, melissa is factoring i think what is happening in these companies to where mark's point, yeah they have all run up and now we're starting to say the cows are coming home and we don't have true eaings growth, the top-line growth that we need. melissa: lance, that is absolutely right. that is the theme we hear again and ain, they can't grow the top line because the economy isn't supporting that. what do you do? how do you respond to that? how do you protect your money? >> well the thing is you have to understand, actually mark hit on a great point, since 2009 revenuesnly grown by about 7% of the earnings have grown by almost 230%. the disparity's come from things like stock buybacks, accounting gimmickry in terms when do we account for stuff and when we don't. and so what drives corporate growth in the stock markets over the long term is that top line revenue, sales. that's what we node to see. that is what --. melissa: lance, i know that, tell me how do i protect my wealth in light of
, and even the mortgage interest tax deduction. the support bases for housing right now seems to be quite artificial, and i think that is why a lot of home builders are afraid to get into this market right now to build more because they are skeptical this is a real recovery. melissa: you are to real estate guys who are not bullish on real estate, how is that? it seems he does not believe in the recovery and the data. >> no, absolutely not. i think there's going to be a significant price increase in housing in the short term. today there may be some momentum created were a lot of momentum created by low intert rate, but when you look historically at the housing market, people need a place to live, even rental properties a lot of them e single-family homes or apartments. at the end of the day, people need a place to go, new household creation is outpacing the supply, so more people looking for a home than there e homes available and nationwide in almost every major metro we are at very low inventory rates so i am bullish. if you want to make money right now, look at single-family homes, tha
see inexas is that taxes, you know, leads t nation in terms of numbers of worker fatalities, and i think that that is a consequence of not being diligent enough in terms of making sure that the facilities that are operating across the state are complying with the state and federal laws that are out the in existence. melissa: so, i mean, this is a problem that could touch anyone in our audience because in texas alone there are 1100 of these little local facilities, fertilizer that sell ctom blends. this is all around the country. what is the bottom line on who you think should be responsible or who is responsible for making sure that they are in compliance and that the emergency response teams are not putting themselves in harm's way when they g in to try and help in the emergency situation? >> well, that's right. i think, you know, there are a number of things that could be done. for instance, the fact that a school and a rest home and hospital or all in very close proximity to the fertilizer plant, i think that is an issue. you know, that is something that needs to be resolved. th
